Opening Weekend Community Celebration!


Starting at 12pm on Saturday June 1 and Sunday June 2,

at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Emily Roebling Plaza!


This year, we’re reintroducing beloved opening weekend classics alongside exciting new additions.


We’re pulling out all the stops with two full days of family-friendly activities, carefully curated photography workshops for professionals and lovers of the craft, engaging tours, and a powerfully captivating night of visual storytelling. There is something for everyone:

Leica Camera workshops, a Penumbra tintype portrait booth, family activities with Creatively Wild, safety workshops designed for visual journalists with ACOS Alliance and Committee to Protect Journalists, workshops with the International Center of Photography, artist-led walking tours with Adobe, and specially curated tours with festival artists and curators. Not to mention, our Educator Community Happy Hour on the Brooklyn Waterfront. If you find yourself hungry, we’ve got you covered with delicious bites at the Smorgasburg Pop Up.

As the summer sun sets, the evening will come alive with our special “We Are Happy To Inspire You” celebration, showcasing new and emerging talents and photography projects from around the world! Join us as we close out with this special commemoration of a summer dedicated to visual storytelling!


While the Opening Weekend Community Celebration is June 1-2, we have the month of June filled with specially curated IRL events and activities in collaboration with The Seaport and MFON – open and free to the public as always! 



Full schedule details will be announced May 8, 2024!
